Our Story

Trade Winds Golf Resort & Hotel will be the premier leisure development on St Helena Island. It is the culmination of a vision of Trade Winds Corporation PLC (TWCPLC). TWCPLC is a London based public company, with property interests in the UK, South Africa and on the island of St Helena

The Dream

The dream began with Paul O’Sullivan, who saw the development potential of St Helena Island and sent an advance party to explore it back in 2015.

This visit resulted in the decision to establish TWCPLC, with a view to commercialise development opportunities on the tropical island of St Helena.

Pilot Project

On 14 October 2017, having already acquired a site for a pilot project, Paul O’Sullivan and fellow director Anthony Fitzhenry, flew to the island on the inaugural passenger service.

Today, TWCPLC’s show house stands proud on Sapper Way, offering magnificent ocean and mountain views. TWCPLC is now the largest investor on St Helena Island, after the British Government

The Resort

On the back of this success, in 2018, Paul negotiated the purchase of a controlling share in St Helena Leisure Corporation Limited (SHELCO), with the option to purchase 160 hectares of prime land, with approvals for a world-class 18-hole golf resort, hotel and villas.

And so Trade Winds Golf Resort & Hotel St Helena Island was born.

Other Investments

Bedfordview Lodge – South Africa

SHCSA is the managing agent of this luxury lodge, purchased for ZAR 13 million in 2015. To date, approximately ZAR 2 million has been spent on renovations, resulting in a magnificent luxury lodge that accommodates high-net-worth individuals on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

Ultimately, the lodge will be made available for sale, and SHCSA will split the profits with the owners.

Sapper Way – St Helena

TWCPLC’s flagship show-house is located at Sapper Way on the island of St Helena.

Our luxurious show house was completed in early 2018, after just five months of construction, with all components shipped to the island from Cape Town, South Africa.

Designed with high-net-worth individuals in mind, Sapper Way will be an example of TWCPLC’s residential developments on the island. The eco-community offers purchasers the opportunity to secure a spot in what is likely to become one of St Helena’s most exclusive and sought-after developments.

Homes will be priced between GBP 500 000 and GBP 750 000 and are available in four different configurations. See below.

Prices will include design, construction, interior design and all furnishings. Each home will be fitted with state-of-the-art energy-saving technology and appliances, as well as a rain harvesting system where possible. The development will be managed by a home owners’ association.

The development will also offer residents sports facilities, a clubhouse and exceptional views of the ocean or hinterland. The development will comprise approximately 100 homes in total.

TWCPLC encourages interested potential homeowners to consider visiting the island to experience the show house for yourself.

Countrywide Luxury Lodges – UK

Countrywide Luxury Lodges have been in business for more than 50 years and is one of the UK’s leading luxury park operators. TWCPLC owns three two-bedroom Dream Lodge units.

Dias Crescent – South Africa

St Helena Corporation South Africa purchased the 30A Dias Crescent property in Douglasdale, Johannesburg, in 2016 and has since purchased the adjacent  two properties.

The company has renovated the original property and let out the buildings as offices. With three buildings next to one another, the company is planning to consolidate the three properties into one, for a mixed-use development.

Agricultural holdings – South Africa

In 2016, St Helena Corporation South Africa purchased 10 freehold agricultural holdings in Gauteng province in South Africa. All have since been sold at a profit.
